Windows 7: Which Office would be best for me?

Which Office would be best for me?

I wouldn't know how to use Office if my life depended on it . The only reason for me to have it is to be able to read docs sent to me from friends. Sooo, when I received my 1st doc. here on Windows 7 I ended up with the Click2Run version. It does let me read the docs. just fine but the reason I'm posting is due to the large number of Warnings in the Event Viewer. (which for the most part I've learned to ignore because of replies from many posters when I posted on the subject of EV). So would it be better to go with Libre or Open Office or ? (free please) so as to get away from filling up the Events?

If all you are wanting to do is view Word docs and not edit or create them, the free Word Viewer from M$ would do the job for you. M$ also has free viewers for Excel and PowerPoint viewers.

There's also a free version of office that you can open/save/edit word docs and excel spreadsheets etc. It's available here Apache OpenOffice Downloads
